Chocolate Milk

x

I used to like

To mix in Nestle’s Quik

Sold by a rabbit

x

It was powder then,

And I was not good

With the result

x

Little globs of wet

Powder on the surface

Of the milk

x

But I liked the process,

Spinning the Quik around

Making a maelstrom

In the center of it all

x

I don’t know if

I had been in the southern world

Would I have stirred it

The other way

x

I’m drinking coffee

From a glass just now

(it’s customized),

And everything is smoother

x

I’m grown up

x

But the stirring

Just this morning

Reminded me of

Turning galaxies

In my child’s glass

Of milk and Nestle’s Quik
